    I don't remember that 5-5 Trinity team making state because I was still pretty young. And yeah Judson was 6-4 but still it means that the regular season means nothing and you can go 4-6 and still make playoffs. At least they should give the team with the better record home field advantage.

    Casa Herrera near the Mall has been mentioned a few times, so I wanted to add my parents go there every week. Friday night when no AHS game or they don't close early (like this past Christmas Eve), and Thursday night otherwise. I personally look forward to going there when I can while visiting. I also really like Square's BBQ on Leggett St just north of North 1st St as Leggett bends from N-S to E-W direction and turns into North 6th st. Harold's has been said and his brisket is still #1 in town, but Square's is close and their smoked chicken is ungodly fabulous.

    If you like foods from the Far East, give "A Taste of Asia" noodle house a try on South 1st just west of Sayles Blvd. It is sometimes called "George's" because that's the owners first name, whom also owns the A.M. Donuts in town, and enjoys interacting with the customers. Taste of Asia is family operated and offers various dishes from various Asian countries to include Thailand and Vietnam. Its also the same building of a once very popular pizza, spaghetti, and lasagna family restaurant was for decades (worked part time there throughout my Junior and Senior years at AHS).

    Is the Shed still open? Someone told me they had closed down. I ate there a few years ago, it was good stuff!

    I tried to find The Shed out in Wingate a month or so ago. I saw nothing in that almost ghost down except one old guy, a few rundown houses, a closed gas station, and a junkyard that looks straight out of a Steven King conception.
